The recipe is from a cookbook called “Beyond Brownies- A Ladystoner Cookbook”

12 tablespoons (1 1/2 stick) salted cannabutter
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 3/4 cups dark brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
2 egg yolks
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup turbinado/raw sugar
1 T. smoked sea salt (you can also use Fleur de sel, Maldon, sea salt, or Kosher salt)

Preheat oven to 375°F and line baking sheets with parchment paper. Sift together the flour, baking soda, and baking powder and set aside.

Place 10 tablespoons of butter into a thick-bottomed skillet over medium heat. The butter will foam a bit before subsiding. Once the butter takes on a tan color and begins to smell nutty take it off of the heat. Add the other two tablespoons of butter and mix it in until it melts.

Pour the brown butter into a mixing bowl fitted with a paddle attachment. Add brown sugar, oil and salt and mix. Add the egg, egg yolks, and vanilla extract and mix together, scraping down the sides and bottom of the bowl at least once. Add the flour mixture in three increments being sure to scrape down the sides and bottom once or twice. Mix just until the flour is incorporated. The dough will be very thick.

Roll the dough into a even, round log shape approximately 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Dredge in turbinado sugar and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Remove from fridge and slice into 1/8″ thick rounds. Place on cookie sheet covered with baking parchment spaced at least 1/4 inch apart. Sprinkle each cookie with a few flakes of smoked sea salt. NOTE: be sparing with the salt – a little goes a long way.

Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the edges have browned a bit. Be careful not to over-bake – these are very thin cookies and they cook fast. Allow to cool on the sheet for one minute before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Yield: Makes 4 dozen

So like I said if you ever get around to trying this recipe I promise you will not be disappointed! It took me awhile to find the smoked sea salt but I finally found it at my local farmers market Oh and for those who don’t know already turbinado sugar is just raw sugar.
